As a graphic designer, illustrator, and photographer I find inspiration in many areas of my day to day life. Art, music, books, food, sports, etc, but my biggest inspiration has always been the outdoors and the plants and animals that inhabit it.
My studies at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa emphasized composition, layout, color and typography.
I also studied various mediums of art such as film photography, digital illustration, and painting.
Studying in such a naturally beautiful place provided me with an amazing array of photography to use in my designs. I collected photographs I took over the years living in Hawai’i and traveling and have always been adamant about using my own photography within my design work.
